Running back Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) is doubtful, while linebacker Chris Carter (abdomen) is questionable.

The team expects to have RB Jonathan Dwyer (quadricep), RB Chris Rainey (rib) and K Shaun Suisham (left ankle) who are all probable

I'll be happy when/if we get a healthy team.

Anyways let the ones who need an extra week of rest get it and get ready for the ratbirds.

The only positive to come from these injuries is that if we can keep plugging away and stay in the playoff race, we should be getting some really good players back fresh and hopefully 100% healthy just in time for the final playoff push.

There's today's silver lining for you free of charge. :chuckle:

Most important one on that list is the kicker.

Gotta have a kicker.

Was Suisham injured when he was tackled on the fake field goal?

I believe he's been on the injury list with a sore ankle for a couple of weeks now

I heard somewhere that Polamalu would be activated for the first Ratbird game!

Polamalu should just retire.

Polamalu should just retire.

I am a huge Palamalu fan, but I have this feeling that he's already retired -- but receiving a paycheck for not playing. I have to wonder if he has lost his confidence, and sitting on the sideline lets him avoid the pressure of performing like he could a few years ago.

He was missing in action against the Packers in Super Bowl XLV. Since than, he's just not the same player. I think he's done, at least in his head.
